- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
2 boneless pork loin chops
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon steak seasoning (to follow)
For steak seasoning -
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Mix together all the ingredients for the steak seasoning until well combined.

Rinse the pork and pat dry with paper towel.  Place in resealable bag.  Mix together the olive oil, soy, and 1 teaspoon of the steak seasoning until well combined.  Pour over pork, seal bag, and place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove pork from bad and discard marinade.  Place the pork over the fire and allow to grill 4-6 minutes on each side or until the pork registers 140-145 degrees F.  Remove from grill, cover with foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.  Serve with optional sauce.  Enjoy!

Optional sauce - mix together 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon champagne vinegar, 2 teaspoons hot sauce (I used Cholula), and 1 teaspoon of steak seasoning - stir to combine.

I don't really eat a huge amount of pork chops but the seasoning you've used here is intruiging and very very tempting... so juicy looking too... now about the weather you sent over... it seems to be fading a little... could you just push some more my way please, just in time for the Queens Jubilee!!
